Bike Block Ting

The Anthology Film Archives have been building a solid rep for inviting dudes like Phillip Glass, Sonic Youth, and our furry friends in Animal Collective to perform live scores for certain screenings. On Sunday, May 15th, they do it once again with a massive collaboration centered around Mat Donnelly's Cycle of Days, as part of the NYC Bicycle Film Festival. The 51-minute flick is based on Ninja Tune artist Blockhead's Music By Cavelight LP, and it tells the story of a Montreal bicycle courier who gets into a traffic accident and finds his perception of city reality completely altered.

Which sounds more than cool enough, but for the 15th, Brooklyn's Jah Taste Muzik soundsystem (aka the Ethiopian Taste crew) was assigned to do the musical score with Bigga Haitian, Mr. Lee G, Bobo Saw, & Sluggy on French/English vocal duties; Blockhead's original score will interchange with reggae rhythms prepared especially for the film by Jah Taste. The whole project sounds so incredibly dope, we've already bought our tickets, seen?
